The Springboard Charity is a leading UK wide provider of training in hospitality, tourism and leisure; we take pride in training and supporting young people and individuals into employment.
We have a two week hospitality training programme starting on Monday 25th September in Dunfermline, and are currently researching 4 week work placement opportunities for our students in this area, ideally starting in w/c 9th October, 2017.
The download below explains what is covered in the formal training, however a practical hands on work experience brings that formal training into their own real life experience, helping them to gain further confidence and a skill set ready for future employment.
There is no commitment on placement providers whatsoever to offer employment at the end of the work placement, we just need a genuine desire from employers to help students into the world of work in hospitality with supportive coaching and a guiding hand for four weeks.
If there is a work opportunity at the end of the placement (short, seasonal or longer term), that would of course be fantastic!!!, but at the very least, the opportunity to gain further developed skills and a credible work reference is invaluable for these students.
Springboard help students with travel costs, and with any uniform requirements; our students also continue to receive allowances from JCP or Skills Development Scotland so the placement comes at no financial cost.
Springboard carry out a Health and Safety Risk Assessment before or on their first days with placement providers (this takes around 30-45 minutes) and visit the students throughout their 4 weeks, and Springboard are always on the end of the phone if there are any issues or concerns at all.
If you have contacts who feel they can help and provide a four week work placement, Springboard would be delighted to hear from them!
